Gold Standard Whey surpasses its competitors, taking the mantle as the highest selling protein powder in the world with massive popularity in Australia.
Gold Standard Whey Protein certainly has hit the heights when it comes to sales, offering a massive range of flavours to suit every taste.
Whey protein has been identified a the highest quality protein source, able to stimulate muscle protein synthesis extremely well 1. Muscle protein synthesis is the anabolic pathway of the body, assisting in recovery from all types of physical activities, from beach sprints to heavy weight lifting. In addition, ON Whey Protein contains all nine essential amino acids in abundance.
These amino acids are naturally found within the protein structure and have important ramifications for general health 2.
The quality of ON Whey Protein is not to be underestimated. Whey protein does in quality based on where it's sourced and the health of the cows from which the milk is derived. All ON Whey Protein comes from Glanbia and the green pastures of Ireland. It has been demonstrated that, even though this is a low fat product, the fatty acid balance in pasture fed cows versus conventionally fed is significantly different.
Pasture fed cows milk contains more Omega 3 and CLA than conventionally fed, which is a good thing 3. After all, most people do not consume enough anti-inflammatory Omega 3s or enough naturally occurring CLA, which promotes fat burning and muscle building.
No bones about it, pasture fed cows produce the purest form of whey protein.
Gold Standard 100% Whey Protein is also high in bioactive compounds such as Immunoglobulin G, Lactoferrin and Bovin Serum. ON Whey Protein supports the immune system and intestinal health important for hard trainers so they can keep performing.
This also allows effective absorption of amino acids for superior muscle growth.
Further enhanced with pre-digested Whey Peptides for ultra-fast absorption, Gold Standard Whey is the award winning ultrafiltered whey protein that gives 100% nutritional support to any athlete looking to increase lean muscle growth, improve muscular adaptation and improve recovery time.
